Announcing the second DUETS workshop, to take place on Friday 28 November at the Firkin Crane, Cork, from 1-5 pm, with drinks and tapas to follow at House Café. 


The theme of this year's DUETS workshop is 'Creativity and Context'. What are the contexts from which creative ideas emerge? What are the relationships between creative work and its contexts of production and consumption? The computing capabilities now made possible by George Boole's work on symbolic logic enable cultural work to be situated in new ways and the workshop will explore these possibilities. Content and context can be related as creative works become part of the fabric of everyday life through increasingly pervasive media and computing technologies and newly emergent immersive arts techniques.

The workshop will be facilitated by Professor Jon Dovey, from the REACT Knowledge Exchange Hub / University of the West of England.

Two DUETS awards of €6000 each are available in 2015: one for an open award and one for a project connected with the work and legacy of George Boole (1815-1864).  

If you have any queries and/or are interested in attending this one-day workshop please RSVP to Michael Waldron at duets@ucc.ie by Wednesday 26 November

The workshop will be facilitated by Professor Jon Dovey, from the REACT Knowledge Exchange Hub / University of the West of England and funded by an Irish Research Council New Foundations Award.

Subsquently, DUETS  funded two collaborative projects: one for an open project which can address any theme (as previously advertised), and one for a project connected with the Great Book of Ireland.
